I attended the game and took some note on the players. It’s an all star game, but it was a fun look at some of the guys.
*****All Star Game, to be taken with grain of salt***** Also, I attended this game, so all notes were on first glance.
⁃ Very slight, especially lower body
⁃ Pushed off drives, weaker core
⁃ Long and contests at rim
⁃ Low release point shot
⁃ Doesn’t move well on court (probably because of size)
⁃ Aggressive off bounce attacking paint and getting to spot
⁃ Great frame, strong now and uses it
⁃ Shot looks better than last year, form solid
⁃ Change of pace
⁃ Handle needs a little work
⁃ Nice pass off to Bol
⁃ Got back on defense – ran back
⁃ Strong attacking rim – nice two foot leaper
⁃ Form improved, less elbow
⁃ First shot diff from second two
⁃ Third one went in. Looks better with time
⁃ Nice handle, smooth with ball
⁃ Shot looks meh off dribble
– Has some muscle on him, and looks like he can add a little more. Long with + wingspan
– Wished he used size/quickness off bounce more getting into paint. It’s an all star game, but I wanted to see him attack more instead of settling for jumpers.
⁃ Head up
⁃ Game manager
⁃ Not rushed at all, good pace
⁃ Mid range going left off dribble
⁃ Came back to play defense. In an all star game. Credit to him
⁃ Gets to spots off screens (and generally)
⁃ Not long
⁃ Looks to push ahead
⁃ Low-ish release, but shot is good.
⁃ Plus vision and makes quick decisions
⁃ Tight handle
⁃ Quick with ball
⁃ Tried to split double behind back, but might be playing to type of game
⁃ Nice finish in paint
⁃ Airball FT
⁃ Before game, not taking seriously
⁃ Long, skinny ish but frame is not bad
⁃ Bad pull up 3
⁃ Gave up baseline off fake hand off
⁃ Skill set isn’t there
⁃ Least competitive player in an already non-competitive game?
⁃ Thin and decently long?
⁃ Form there for shot long term
⁃ Very small / thin shoulders. Bad frame
⁃ Weak going up against Swider with hands up in paint
⁃ Came back just after weak paint attempt with block on Langford
⁃ Not particularly quick laterally
⁃ Needs more skill work – no skill set
-G-League will be a rough wake up call for him
⁃ Projectable as shooter w/form – hit three in second
⁃ Touch around rim/left hand over Bol
⁃ Strong frame, smooth athlete, long?
– Looks like a strong 2 going forward.
⁃ Good frame and strong, but doesn’t look particularly long
⁃ Two great rotations on same play, foul on second. Was trying on defense and playing with high energy. Was impressed he was going that hard in this setting.
⁃ Strong athlete but not explosive in terms of height – good athlete, not great? Looked explosive on windmill, but looks like he glides up instead of exploding up
⁃ Active In paint
⁃ Took charge
⁃ Strong in paint
⁃ Listed as PF, looks like SF – maybe small ball 4?
⁃ Nice finish through contact on break
⁃ Shot in front of head. Line drive ish, needs more arc
⁃ Looks decently long. Not super long, but + wingspan
⁃ Nice shot with nice form. Compact.
⁃ Contests everything at rim / active on defense at rim
⁃ Looks comfortable shooting from outside even though nothing went in
